Reverse reads:

Mr W G Bassett. Contractor Builder

Pohangina River railway bridge, 8-80 ft spans iron on iron cylinders about 36ft below stream bed.

The river bed is about half a mile wide and the water rises about 15ft. and is very rapid and fetches down great quantities of timber as may be seen in the foreground.

On the left of the picture is seen a low bank, which is the railway line on the left bank of the Manawatu Gorge, and about 1 mile from the 1st tunnel, which is over 25 chains long and about a mile and a 1/2 from the second tunnel, which is over 19 chains long.

R McGonagle 1889
